providence, right in front of city hall. there has not been a soul in sight in the last four hours that i have been here. that's how abandoned it is. an emergency vehicle drove up to see if we were doing all right here. i spoke to the governor today. i was with the mayor, i was in the emergency command center tonight, chris. their real concern, they said we know we're going to have power outages. the issue is how many. if the snow doesn't get more dry, if it doesn't get colder, frankly, they're expecting many power outages. they say a prolonged storm is what they fear. not only afterwards do they have the plowing issue. they have the snow removal issue. one thing that makes this very different than 1978, the governor told me that technology today is so much better. i saw the gps they have on their plows now. the technology is so much better that they are able to prepare in advance, get those plows exactly where they need to be, get the cars off the roads in advance, that they're not going to have the same issues. you had 26 deaths here in 1978 during that blizzard. and here you go, anothe
lot. in south boston, but the reality is some 600 plows have been out throughout the city all night trying to battle this blizzard. throughout the state, you've got about 4,000 pieces of equipment, the national guard numbering about 5,000, who are on the standby when the teeth of the storm hits. just about an hour or so from now. we blizzard like conditions, if you look up the street, you can barely see up the street. simply because you have this powdery like snow which is blowing all over the place and making things very difficult. i just want to give you an example of how cold it is here. in between live shots, i run to my truck which is being buried in the snow drift, but my photographing stays out so you can get live bumps, live pictures of what is going on. let me show you, hand that to my producer. this is hard. he's like the tin man out here. it's trying to -- thanks, bob, for doing that for us. bob the photographer, who is now literally frozen stiff. >> wow. >> you can see he's still out here shooting, giving us an idea of how cold it gets out here. >> amazing job that all o
on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
you think the city's response has been so far to the blizzard? >> it's been great. they have given us a lot of notice and the signs on the highways and the emergencies on the internet and other signs across the city. it's been -- they have prepared us well. >> i know you guys also stocked up on supplies. earlier, some of the supermarkets in the city were running out of milk, running out of bread. i think you have plenty of other types of supplies to keep you busy. >> we might have other supplies to keep us busy, but we are also, you know, do have supplies and water and things like that. but you know, we are trying to realize that we will be here for the weekend and trying to make sure we have everything that will keep us sustainable through that time period. >> they were telling me earlier, anderson, they hadn't seen snow like this in a few years? >> long time. >> a few years, gut obviously, we still have a lot more to go before the night is over. >> jason, we'll be checking with you. we'll be on the air for two hours and more coverage after that, so all night long. a short drive down
of the snow is east of new york city. everywhere you see pink through here, that's a foot of snow or more, and the purple is 20 to 30 inches of snow. that's from portland, maine, to boston, to providence, that's still to come. you already have 6 on the ground. there's plus 20. that's still a good snowfall. albany, you'll see about 6 to 10 more. down toward new york city, it appears you're almost in this dry area where there will be 8 to your north, 4 to your south, but not a lot more to come still in the city compares to what is on long island, over a foot still to come here. and this is the danger zone, just snowing everywhere out here. it's coming down in buckets because at the low comes through here, its closest position is going to be to boston, not new york city. that's why snow is not going to be as heavy in the city as in boston because the low is much closer there. then by tomorrow afternoon, literally, this thing is gone. saturday, 4:00, 5:00, the snow is completely over. only the wind is left. erin. >> what's the bottom line? there have been competing models. someone said the eu

the city. he's stuck. he came into this church parking lot. was going to plow it, got halfway through, but the conditions proved to be too much, so he's been struggling to get out of that particular position for the past 20 minutes or so. but again, anderson, there is a fleet of some 5,000 vehicles like this that are out on the streets throughout the state, plowing roads. plowing the primary routes, plowing parking lots and secondary routes like the one that you see here. looks like he's finally going to make his way out of here, but we're going to move back just a little bit. as you know, anderson, in addition to the fleet of equipment that they have out in the streets, the governor has also enacted a plan banning basically all vehicles on the streets except for emergency vehicles. that has certainly helped. it's kept a number of people off the street out here in boston, in massachusetts, as the storm continues to barrel down. i can tell you just from the experience here, it's an icy, wet, blinding, bitter type of snow. it just hits your face, it's painful being out here. so this is
